One of the biggest games of the season in the Pac-12 Conference will take place Saturday when the Oregon Ducks travel to Seattle to take on the Washington Huskies in a 4 p.m. afternoon showcase. The No. 2 Oregon Ducks go into the game undefeated and trying to keep their national championship hopes going strong, while the Huskies will be trying to get a big win on the toughest part of their schedule, one week after losing a hard-fought game to Stanford by only three points.
As a result of both teams having a bevy of potential 2014 NFL draft prospects, this week’s game prospect preview is a double feature. Joe Marino is focusing solely on Oregon’s prospects this week, while he has been joined by fellow staff writer and Washington state resident Joseph Curtis, who is taking a closer look at the Huskies’ top prospects this week.
Oregon’s top five prospects are listed on page 1, while six from Washington can be found on page 2.
